As someone who uses many devices day in and day out that would have never come to fruition without Steve's insight and boldness, I will miss Steve dearly. The world has lost one of the greatest visionaries. Today as I turn on my Mac Pro, take out my MacBook Air and iPad from my bag, check my iPhone constantly, and wear my Field Trip to the Apple Store t-shirt, I will do so in honor of the man who made all of these things possible.

:cry:

I'm not an Apple die-hard like some others are. Though, my life was definitely affected by his innovations. Most of us probably haven't bought a CD in years because of him. I'll never forget the first iPod I got. I've had 3 different iterations of it since then. I thought it was the coolest thing and he of course took it a step further with the iPhone and iPad. Definitely our generation's Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. RIP, Steve.
